She is what love is

She is what love is

A Poem by willweb

The naked skyline falls into a quiet darkness,

slick sidewalks and flickering street lights bid farewell

as I enter the elevator to her loft, fifth floor

My day was long, but worth it, she makes it worth it

The hallway is silent… I knock lightly, no answer,

letting myself in I see her through the open glass doors


I let her hear my footsteps…

a slow drizzle shimmers on the big city

Her perfume tempts my senses as she

peers from the balcony’s iron rail

into the vast cavern of sleeping buildings…

like a rose petal hourglass


She feels me…closer…her black dress and red heels

against the dark backdrop of

dreary skies silhouette her beauty,

she is a poem waiting to be read,

a song you can’t get out of your head

or would want to


I place my arms about her waist,

she turns, moist ruby lips infectious,

eyes hiding her story find mine,

the rain falling like diamond tear drops

decorates her cheeks as she smiles

and my heart is flooded with light


We embrace, a deep passionate kiss,

locked in haunting silence

speaking louder than any words,

all that was cold becomes warm

as moisture seeps, dampening my skin,

and I don’t care


She is what love is…

a hot cup of coffee on a cold winter day,

a cool breeze in the middle of August,

a beautiful delicate flower

blooming from a crack in the asphalt

on that long, endless highway of life…and she is mine
